Unhide pictures on Blackberry
UN-HIDING THE PHOTO
Select the MEDIA icon on the home page of the phone - STOP at the initial Media page (the page with the visual icons that offer the choices of Music, Videos, Ring Tones, Pictures and Voice Notes)..
Click on the menu button (left of the trackball), and Select "Explore".....this will take you to a File Explorer type of menu.....
Select "Device Memory"
In the "Pictures" folder, click on the Menu button, and select "Show Hidden"...
The file name of the hidden photo will appear in the Pictures folder in GREY...
Highlight the file name....click on the Menu button, and select "Properties"...
A new window will open.....scroll to the bottom of the window and click on the box next to "Hidden"...this will REMOVE the check that was there.....click the "Back" button on the phone...or the "Close" button inside the window.

UN Hide images
ok... so.. I went to the properties of media, and now I've somehow hidden my media pictures folder.
Let me start from the beginning. I have hidden images on my blackberry, and am trying to figure out how to un-hide them.
So, I have looked at the posts below and went to:
(didn't see a properties) so
clicked on "Explore"
Now i've managed to hide that "pictures" folder on the memory card. UGH!
Can someone help me un-hide my images and that folder? There so should be a disable feature to that "Hide" button.

I recently had some hidden files and folders on my storm. Actually finding them was really easy. Here is what I did:
either folder or all files (i have a ton so I did folders)
media card or device memory (depending where they might be)
....for me, mine was in the pictures section so I clicked on that
hit the smart button and select show hidden
You can really do this also by selecting the all files and show hidden because the hidden file is shaded gray so its easy to scroll down and select it

GEEZ! After reading ALL of these and google AND just plain o' playing around on my phone and getting aggravated beyond belief, i figured this out!
I have a BB Curve 8330 Verizon
- Open up your "Media" (the app with your videos, ringtones, pictures, etc..)
- Put your "cursor" over the Pictures Icon but don't click on it
- Press the "Dot's Key" (ya kno, the key next to the trackball with the dots)
- Then click "explore"
** You should see "Media Card" and Device Memory"
** (I clicked Media Card cause I don't keep pics on my Device)
* Now you should see a list of folders
* My phone shows some of these folders:
and so on and so forth
- Click the "Blackberry" folder
**Now it should have yet another list of folders like - app_world, documents, music, pictures, ringtones...etc..**
- Click on the "Pictures" folder
**If you have pictures yet to be put in a folder after taking a picture on your phone, they will appear here AFTER clicking "Pictures". Since I don't have this area clear of pictures, I don't know what it would be like for someone who doesn't have pictures in this section. But if you DO have pictures NOT in a folder after taking a picture, then this is for you.**
** Now you should see "Camera" and if you have pictures, they will be here, too.
NOW, CLICK THE "DOTS KEY" AND CLICK "SHOW HIDDEN" & YOUR FOLDER/PICS SHOULD BE THERE!!!!
- Then all you have to do to make this "visible" again, view "properties" on that folder/picture and UNCHECK the "hidden" checkbox.
I'm sorry if none of this works for you.
& if your like me, I would definitely memorize these steps just in case there is something you want to hide from the rest of the world =P
But this is what I did to find my "missing" folder.

Elhrisse instructions make the assumption that people are using their Device Memory, when the vast majority use their Media Card. Focus on the Media Card and you should be fine.
